Boys might want to look away for a few minutes. Girls might want to get ready to buy this.
2 things I have issues with:
Sleeping: My sleep schedule has always been fall asleep around 3/4AM. Always, even when I was a kid. Sometimes I want to go to bed early – at say midnight – but my mind is active and travels. Last night I was in bed trying to fall asleep and I remembered I forgot to clean a cat toy so I got up and cleaned it. Then I remembered I didn’t put the brushes away from Halloween, so I did that. Then I thought of a recipe so I grabbed for my iPhone. I sleep with my iPhone next to us in bed. Actually we both do. It’s horrible. I check my email all the time and then I can’t fall back asleep. Anyways, finally after giving up I remembered I had some Yogi Bedtime Tea saved up to try. So I made a cup and within 30 minutes I felt a little drowsy, I fell asleep pretty easily.
That time of the month: Cramps – check. Headaches – major check. I get headaches that knock me out and can cause tears of frustration. It seems like nothing helps, not even some Tylenol or like brand. I read about Yogi’s Moon Cycle though which combats all the usual pms symptoms. I just made a cup and it’s quite delightful – a very heavy cinnamon smell and tasty. The box says: To help balance hormones and support your reproductive system, drink 1 to 3 cups per day. During premenstrual days, drink 4 to 5 cups throughout the day. I will be doing this for the next few days and let you know how it goes.
You can get Yogi Teas at some supermarkets, but most likely your organic/fancy gourmet grocer will have it. Boxes are around $5-$6 and have 16 bags. A bit pricey, but well worth it. If you buy from Amazon, see links above, you need to buy in bulk but it comes down to less than $3 a box (free shipping with Amazon Prime which I love), a great deal.
